Three Courtyards House in Benavente, Portugal by Miguel Marcelino Arquitecto

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: Miguel Marcelino Arquitecto

The plot  is located in the middle of a “montado” landscape, being the best views to the north with a lake and the skyline punctuated by cork oak trees. The house is organized in a compact volume of two floors, complemented by three courtyards all different in size and features. A first large courtyard, enclosed, intimate, situates on the south side, embracing a big existing cork oak. Next to the back entrance there is another smaller patio, for service. The third courtyard works as a key element in the relationship between home and the north side – it’s a slim space with a large horizontal opening that frames the landscape – it has an atmosphere of a “inner space outdoors”, the light is soft, by reflection on the outer wall that receives direct sunlight. This vertical courtyard communicates with a staircase that leads to an open terrace, the last element of the sequence of spaces, patios and atmospheres that go from more introspective and private to more open and outside.

Wine Hotel Quinta Do Vallado in Peso Da Régua, Portugal by Guedes + de Campos

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Article source: Francisco Vieira de Campos

Jean Baudrillard defines architecture as “a mixture of nostalgia and extreme anticipation”. This idea comes along like a murmur in all the proposals, especially heritage projects. Each project always represents a renewed commitment to capture what is unique and non-transferable in each architectural episode.

N2X035 HOUSE in Azores Islands, Portugal by N2X Arquitectos

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: N2X Arquitectos

This project is located on a plot of land of some interest in a place called Lugar da Ribeira da Praia. We started from an unusual context, as this plot housed some ruins at a higher location, naturally kept apart from the surrounding lower agglomerate with which it apparently dialogues and which we then designated as “village”.

The site is a clearing with dense wooded surroundings. The house has large glazed surfaces, increasing the interior exterior relation. Wooden sliding louvres, recessed in the walls, provide shade from the sun and protection from intruders. Roof slabs extend to the exterior, shading the glazed panels.
